Tails Butt Rotor by darkspeeds


Credit goes to Brawkinthefamily.com. I randomly found this on Facebook and couldn't help but share it. :D

The animated version will make full sense of the joke but deviantART couldn't display animated GIF's of this nature on journals. Click here to see Tail's butt in action! lol


Anyways I've just finished penciling pages 3 & 4 to Sonic Boom: Unwrapped! I'm pretty chuffed with the results. = ) Right now I'll have to get my ass back into uni-work mode - got some assignments to finish off. Enjoy your week everyone!

:star: I Got The Masterplan!!


It's been raining all day in San Francisco. I couldn't do much other than draw... And this is what I came up with!

Anyways, after watching 'The Wind Rises' with Svend Joscelyne (aka Dreadknux, creator of The Sonic Stadium and The Summer of Sonic) who came to visit San Francisco for business I was pleasantly surprise to see this trailer:





I'm going to make an effort to watch Ernest & Celestine tomorrow morning. The animation is gorgeous, the concept is heart-warming and the music is divine. It's already received plenty of praise and awards from some of the harshest critics out there, I'm sure I will benefit from watching this. 


In fact this children's/all ages feature film brings me back wonderful memories of my childhood watching cartoons after school - Barbar was one of them!

I'll let you know my thoughts on the film tomorrow! For now here's a lovely shot of the two main protagonists of the film:

(Their watercolor art style is absolutely gorgeous!)




:star: I Ran Out Of Ideas... O.O


As I left for San Jose to visit my friends two weeks back I remembered thinking right after I finished my Perspective class: "Awesome! Two-point perspective, this should be a breeze! I'm sure I can come up with something while I'm visiting Evan and Devin for the weekend. :)


Fast forward to last night and I flabbergasted at how I couldn't come up with a concept that was brilliant and, at the same time, satisfying enough for me to enjoy the drawing process. I only had 18 hours till my assignment was due and I was kinda knocking myself on the head with disappointment and frustration at why I couldn't produce an idea that I was happy to work with.


When all else fails, just shoot for something that you really enjoy drawing - in my case - Sonic the Hedgehog. To be more precise, Sonic Boom.


With very little time in my hands I had to think of something real quick, one that would be captivating enough for me to focus all night and morning.


Then I remembered the this concept artwork from the Sonic Boom team:

I still get such a sweet sensation tingling inside me whenever I see this artwork. It's so strong, so captivating that it makes me want to LIVE and BREATHE there. I want to go and explore such an amazing setting! It speaks to me of an exciting village hidden in an island just off the coast, delve deep into the mountainous jungle and there you'll find a lost paradise of ruins, hidden gardens, rustic bridges and waterways, clever civilization that recycles junk to create and refurbish architecture and landscapes and surprisingly temperate weather!


I got inspired by the idea to draw a different section of this work in progress setting for the Sonic Boom video game series. I had to use another reference to help me out. Then I remembered the island!

Yeah! How about I draw the port of this fantastic village hidden on the island? And so I began the drawing process: gathering more reference material, class notes on how to do two-point perspective and all the tools I need to get the job done.

At this point in time it was around 12AM, I had to call it quits after drawing for 6 hours (alot of the time for this segment was dedicated to gathering reference material to work with, planning on the composition, and working out the corrective perspective points and measurements). 


I work up at around 5AM this morning, ate my brekky, watched a bit of the news and got straight back to drawing (with speed)!

Just before I show you the final here's a quick look at what it looked like in thumbnail form:

Now then, 6 hours later... After touching up on the details to the buildings... And after checking up on all the corrective measures for the two point perspective applied to the artwork... Here's the finished drawing! Ooo! The sun's up! lol

Hope you enjoyed this little sneak peak on my drawing process for an assignment of this nature. Get inspired and get drawing. ;)


Oh and also! If you didn't know who those characters are other than Sonic, Tails, Amy and Knuckles well here's my reference. 8-)

I want to call those hippos Gin and Tonic. And as for the fisherman dude, I'll call him Bobby for now. XD ;)
